We hope this update finds you and your families well and enjoying the glimpses of sunshine, holding promise for the months ahead!
Move to Narre Warren North
It has finally arrived – the end is in sight! Buildings are in place (and stable), decking is attached, playground is installed, services are being connected as we write, preparations for the fit out, move and set up are in place.
The move and set up will take place over the term break, and students will be welcomed on site for the start of Term 4. Good things come to those who wait!
Efforts for car pooling to Belgrave have been herculean and heroic – each day, only three cars arrive, transporting 13 children. Whilst parents will no doubt be relieved when the school is closer and transport more straight forward, the children will surely miss the company and play every morning and afternoon has brought!
Report on Key Parent Function – Dr Gerard O’Shea
We enjoyed an excellent key parent function last week by Dr Gerard O’Shea, author of As I Have Loved You, a valuable resource for parents providing a programme for a Christian education in human love and sexuality for children.
The topic and speaker attracted a sell-out crowd and left standing room only! His presentation was sprinkled with stories from his discussions with his own children – his advice has been family tested and has come up trumps. Whilst many developments in Australian society leave parents deeply concerned about the education upcoming generations are receiving in sexuality and family, parents left Dr O’Shea’s presentation inspired and empowered.
We are very pleased to be able to offer the opportunity to learn from speakers on such important topics, not only to our own enrolled families but to the broader community.
